Microsoft Hyper-V is a native hypervisor technology developed by Microsoft and is included with most editions of Windows Server operating systems. It enables administrators to create and manage virtual machines and their resources, such as CPU, memory, storage, and network connections. Hyper-V provides a flexible and scalable platform for virtualization, allowing administrators to run multiple operating systems and applications on a single physical server, making the most out of hardware resources.

Hyper-V virtualization enables organizations to improve their IT infrastructure and reduce costs. By running multiple virtual machines on a single physical server, organizations can achieve higher server utilization rates, lower energy consumption, and reduced hardware costs. With Hyper-V, administrators can create and manage virtual machines in a centralized manner, making it easier to deploy, manage, and maintain their IT environment. Furthermore, Hyper-V supports live migration of virtual machines, enabling administrators to move virtual machines between physical servers without any downtime, providing increased availability and flexibility for their IT infrastructure.
